A little over a year ago I met this awesome girl.
Her name is LO.
She rocks.
The Lord knew I needed a friend just like her.
She is beautiful. fun. inspiring. encouraging.
Now, she is moving.
I am sad.

Happy for their family and this awesome opportunity.
But, sad for moi.
She is not the only friend moving.
One moved six months ago.
One moved four months ago.
Another is moving.

I know moving is a part of life.
We have moved four times in our eleven years of marriage.
But, I just feel like throwing a big ol' tantrum.
You know the ones like your kids throw?
Maybe I will just go and do that and possible I will feel better.
Or better yet, I will take this to the Lord.

Ephesians 4:30 (The Message)

 30Don't grieve God. Don't break his heart. His Holy Spirit, moving and breathing in you, is the most intimate part of your life, making you fit for himself. Don't take such a gift for granted.

Romans 12:12 (English Standard Version)

12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Oh, Allison, I have been where you are so many times. I'll miss LO, too. I feel like I was just getting to know her. I'm praying for you.

Moving HURTS so much! God knows I've questioned why He's blessed me with a sweet, amazing friend like you, only to pull me up and plant me somewhere else where there's no one... no one except HIM... But I just have to trust through the tears that He knows best, and that His pruning somehow is going to make me (and you) bear more fruit. (Do you remember telling me that He prunes what is good, to give us what is best?!)
And I sure am looking forward to that day and place when none of us EVER, EVER has to say good-bye again! Love you and miss you dear friend - more than you'll ever know.

I love you, Allison. Yesterday, the thought of you popped into my head and made me smile. I miss you.
